    What I Got Today!

    Yes Sir, straight from Hope, Arkansas.
  5. Bruce, never say never. I follow a lot more threads than I engage in. When I have asked questions I have received helpful advice from you and others. I have noticed that you are always willing to help others and offer advice based on sound principles. I applaud you and find it only fitting to play it forward. I have a extra pair of 402’s. Long story short they are from the Klipsch 1st production run. I replaced them with a new pair last year. One has a crack and one has a spider fracture. Both very much repairable, especially with the skills I’ve seen you display on this forum. I have the original boxes my new ones came in. I’m still new on learning about the physics behind sound, but I’m a darn good packer and fill confident I can get them to you safely. You now own a pair of 402’s. Send me a personal message and we will get the ball rolling. Happy New Year ! Jim
  6. I made panels using rockwool safe & sound. Did the frame with 1x3x 8 furring strips and used landscape ground cover cloth for fabric. They were easy to fabricate, inexpensive and work great.
  7. I nominate Dave for club President
  8. I’m in the “no Facebook club”. 😎
  9. This is how my system is set up with KPT-942 and soon to be KPT-942/4. My crossovers are separated for HF and Mid HF “most would call LF” and are in-line after the source and before the separate preamps. The HF has tube preamp & tube mono amps to each 402 driver. The LF has a SS preamp and separate Class A amps to the drivers of the 904 drivers. I gain balance the separate preamps and use my DAC attenuation as the master and the separate preamps as slaves.
  10. Come on man, Did you read the “item description” “”The main speaker is eliptical with lightweight paper cone on a paper suspension, the tweeter is oval also with paper cone.”” Ok, it is Christmas so I will sell them to you under one condition. If someone on here makes you a better offer you have to play it forward and pass them on, it’s only fair man, because you know the rarity these speakers.
  11. I was that guy you were bidding against so I sent a message to the seller and made an offer of $650. He accepted and said he would send you a “so sorry but blah, blah, blah, blah message”””. BAM !!!
  12. Welcome Sir. I totally understand the combination workspace environment. When you are able to pull the speakers off the wall be prepared to be “blown away”. Just trying to prep you for an astonishingly moment. You have never heard what those speakers will do till you pull them 1/3 into the room. Cheers !
  13. Due to my choice of source equipment; Auralic Aries G2, Vega G2 & Leo GX, wireless streaming with dedicated Lightning Digital Streaming application, I am very limited to crossover components and EQing because I have to accomplish crossover after my DAC. As far as crossover the Marchand has been the best route so far due to the ability to make adjustments in analog. The LDS app has 16 PEQ ability. Tried Dbx DriveRack Venu360 and the system versatility was amazing but in the end, for sound quality, the Marchand was more open & dynamic, “in my opinion and with my system”.
